Goleta CA Real Estate
Goleta CA real estate is multi-faceted. After all, Goleta is a town with many faces. As a bedroom community for Santa Barbara, it is home to families supportive of their schools, churches, parks and community organizations. As a “college town” it supports a large population of students enrolled at the sprawling campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara. As a hub of the high-tech industry, it serves as a base for cutting-edge computer-related businesses. And it still retains a measure of its days as favored location for farms and ranches.
A Strong Sense of Community
Open the official City of Goleta website and community spirit jumps off the screen. It’s easy to see why this city of a little over 30,000 residents is a favorite among families, new arrivals to the Santa Barbara area, seniors and others. As the website states: “Goleta is a safe and active community that prides itself on the high quality of life available to its residents.”
Focus on Education and Community Activities
Learning and recreation are paramount here. A sizable complement of public and private schools exists either within or adjacent to the community. A major incentive for education is the presence of the University of California Santa Barbara, honored internationally with six Nobel Laureates. Learning and recreational activities abound here as well. The Goleta Valley Community Center, for example, serves all age groups, from child care and classes for all ages, through senior services. Parks and other open spaces abound.
A Bit of Goleta History
Originally home to a large Native American village, Goleta was visited by European explorers beginning in the 16th century. The community began its modern-day history as a center for agriculture and vast ranches, saw a period of oil and gas production, then served as the location of a military airfield during wartime. That airfield has evolved into the current Santa Barbara Municipal Airport.
